ABC newscaster George Stephanopoulos tested positive for coronavirus over the weekend, the network reported Monday.
The news comes nearly two weeks after Stephanopoulos’ wife, Ali Wentworth, confirmed her diagnosis. She has been recovering at their New York City home.
Stephanopoulos, 59, has been broadcasting “Good Morning America” from home. He told his co-hosts on Monday morning that his diagnosis is “really no surprise,” but that he has been “basically asymptomatic” — unlike Wentworth, who previously described the condition as “pure misery.”
“I’ve never had a fever, never had chills, never had a headache, never had cough, never had shortness of breath,” he said.
Wentworth is now doing “much, much better,” Stephanopoulos said, according to ABC.
“She’s going on her fifth day now with no fever, which is really a great sign,” he said of the author and comic. “Slowly getting out of bed a little bit more each day, so really happy about that.”
Wentworth, who has been married to Stephanopoulos since 2001 and are the parents of two children.
